    I considered Jay as one of my dearest friends. He proved that time and time again. He saved me when I had sun poisoning when I worked at Oldies 106, where we became friends. I've never forgotten that night. I will miss you buddy. Randy McDaniels, TLC.

    We will never forget the first time we met Jay, his first time in the UK. After which we spent many happy days in New Orleans with him and Paula each time we visited. We will miss you so much.
    Rest in peace our good friend
